Why not have a park within a park or have a large area on top of the hill that is under Indigenous control and renamed as they see fit.

Don't forget the lawn bowling club that is available for members and non-members to rent for private functions.

You mean like a reservation.

I'm sure City staff will finagle it so Indigenous control of the park is in effect, merely symbolic. Like they would not be allowed to sell artwork or food items inside the proposed longhouse.The City can chop down statues and street signs like there's no tomorrow but I doubt there will be significant transfers of power where it really matters.

So this reconciliation stuff is either insincere or dangerous.

Which is why I don't understand the whole point. Having the Mayor apologize each day for stealing FN land doesn't really do much for anyone. It would be like my boss apologizing to me every day for not paying me enough money and treating me like poop and then walking out the door to his next golf game. I am supposed to feel better?

Nope, but they'll feel better. Its all about virtue signalling.

 

Isnt that what this current Federal government mandate is for Justin, its the Apology Tour

 

The same applies to our leftist friends at CoV and other local councils...its the equal sharing of misery and the rejection of success in any endeavour

That $30,000 would have been a hot breakfast program for a year for 2 or more inner-city schools

Or subsidized someone's rent in a 1-bedroom apartment for 2.5 years.

19th November 2018, is DOUGLAS DAY. It was 160 years ago that British Columbia was officially proclaimed after the tumultuous gold rush summer of 1858!
 

Are we surprised that nothing was mentioned about this

Outside of the Mayor and two council members, all of the "family members" are FN. You would think that one or two of them might mention that they expect more than platitudes and a statue removal in exchange for the sharp downward shift in enthusiasm for FN issues amoung the general public.
